You may recall that at the beginning of the month I forecast, via the jet stream charts, that the weather would change around today. Well my forecast was nearly right as the most signficant changes will not be until overnight.
First, there is a rogue band of rain cloud moving just to the West of us through Cannock between 06:00 and 09:00 hours. There is a 40% chance that we may catch the edge of the system and we will see a small amount of rainfall. The further east towards the Tamworth side of the city you are the less likely you are to see any rainfall from this small system.
During the majority of the day we will see some bright spells which will help lift our top temperature up to around 19-20c. As the day passes into late afternoon and evening you will notice that the cloud cover will increase. This cloud will help maintain an overnight temperature of around 9c.
During the morning the winds will be very light but there is a large low pressure system developing out to the W-SW of us at the moment and this will bring a gusty breeze and rain overnight and through parts of tomorrow. Our wind today will be blowing from the SE and will increase in speed as the day progresses. Starting off with a whisper this morning by late evening we will feel gusts of around 15 -20mph.
A generally dry day with cloud increasing alter in the day.
